Whisky Advocate Talks to Will Cheek

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Will Cheek is featured in the Winter 2013 issue of Whisky Advocate. The story titled “Tennessee Whiskey in High Definition” outlines the new formal mark of distinction for a product to be labeled “Tennessee whiskey”—it must be charcoal-mellowed before aging. Some critics say this inhibits the growth of the craft spirits industry, an area where Tennessee has recently experienced huge growth.

“Why hinder the rebirth of an industry that has huge profits for the state? Why put limits on the way to make whiskey to one production method?” he told the magazine.

Whisky Advocate Features George Dickel Distillery in Summer Issue

Congratulations to Bone McAllester Norton client George Dickel distillery, which received a six-page feature in the summer issue of Whisky Advocate, the nation’s leading whiskey magazine. Author Lew Bryson toured the grounds of the distillery in Cascade Hollow, Tennessee, with master distiller John Lunn. George Dickel has found success using a simple rule: Not changing a thing about the way their liquor is made, which involves old school technology, no automation, eyeball measurements and a hands-on approach. Lunn explains that a factory cannot maintain a hand-crafted approach like they take.

Whisky Advocate Features Corsair in Fall Issue

Congratulations to Bone McAllester Norton client Corsair Artisan distillery, which was prominently featured in the Fall 2013 issue of Whisky Advocate, the nation’s leading whiskey magazine. The article, “Craft Nation: The State of American Craft Whiskey Distilling,” outlines where craft whiskey started in America, how it reached the success it has today and where it is headed in the future. Darek Bell, co-founder of Corsair, was pictured and quoted on why artisan whiskey is distinct, and arguably better, than mainstream whiskey.
